How to Brighten your skin/ reduce hyper pigmentation

Hey “BD beauties”!

Hope you all enjoyed the recent giveaway hosted and keep tuned because imp already planning my next one for my birthday! I’m turning 20 this Thursday so I have something special coming up ;) so getting back to today’s topic, in my community there are enough of bad attitudes towards having tan skin and wanting to have lighter skin which is completely ridiculous but the fact is if your natural skin tone is getting lighter through some products, bleach etc that a bad sign that something terrible is going to happen to your skin in the long run. So today I’m going to tell you ways to ‘brighten’ your complexion instead of lightening them!

Vitamin C in and out

Products containing vitamin C are natural exfoliates that remove dead skin cells and instantly plumps your new ones. This is why vitamin C extracts are included in face washes with this claim. However such face washes have this vitamin c extracts in very small quantities up to the extent that they really don’t show. This is when you need a serum! A serum is a concentrated solution for each of your skincare problems and is defiantly something you need to try. I have tried a vitamin c serum which I reviewed here. Since these have more quantities of what we want and is concentrated, it does the job. You should also be eating fruits containing vitamin C to speed up your wait time for results.

Brightening with baking soda

Baking soda is sodium based and a gentle exfoliate it helps to loosen dead skin cells if you’re supposed to avoid sodium in your diet due to some reason you should not be doing this as it does get absorbed to your skin. This is a great way for oily skin but defiantly not for girls with dry skin and I find that baking soda does dry out the skin a tad bit. Make a paste with pure water and about a teaspoon of baking soda and apply on the areas needed and leave it for 30 seconds. Nothing more than that! Doing this thrice a week, you will notice a brighter complexion.


Papayas have an enzyme called papain which does wonder for hyper pigmentation however this is more present in papayas that haven’t ripened yet. All you got to do is puree the papaya in a lender adding tiny amounts of water and apply on your face and leave for about 15 minutes. Wash if off after 15 minutes. This is more of an acid treatment so do not forget to moisturize afterwards.



Thank you all for appreciating and giving me your comments! it does give me a huge encouragement to keep blogging :)
